yesterday. we want to remind viewers as we peel away the layers of this law from march of 2010 when then speaker of the house nancy pelosi said this about obamacare. >> but we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it away from the fog of the controversy. >> now we're finding millions of americans could have their insurance dropped as a result. steve, want to p put you on pause in a moment. when we come back we'll talk about the politics. 10 any hoyer said yesterday the law should have been more precise. you wonder how many more democrats are falling into that way of thinking, but, steve, standby. there is sebelius in the room. martha has more. martha: shaking hand to say hello to everybody as she gets ready to go here. a lot of smiles and friendliness on way in. we'll she as she sits at table. the lead contractor on, warned her, warned hhs, the holt and human services website was not ready to go. so what under after that is one of the big questions that we expect kathleen sebellius will get. chris stirewalt joins me right now. that is the big issue

're over the website. >> the problem with obama care isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> the problems go well beyond a flopped website. >> it is clear obama care and flaws are much more than the website. the website is the tip of the iceberg. >> this week republicans smelled blood in president obama's claim no americans would be kicked off their existing plans. >> let me repeat this. nothing in our plan requires you to change what you have. >> and yet as nbc reports a detailed look at the legislation shows that the administration knew that more than 40 to 67% of those in the individual market, or some percentage of 14 million americans, would not be able to keep their existing plans. never mind the fact the new plans will offer more comprehensive coverage and sometimes at a lower price tag, this is clearly the next front in a war on the nation's health care law. >> we know this morning is the president knew that these letters were coming. in the president knew these letters were comin

coffee grounds to wait his turn. >> why won't you go into the exchange, you are part of this law and in charge of this law should you be any different than the other americans out there who are losing their health insurance? >> i am part of the 95 percent with affordable, available healthcare if i have affordable work coverage in my workplace i am not eligible to go into the workplace. >> i would encourage you to be just like the american people and enter the exchange and agree to find a way to do that. i don't care. >> it is illegal. >> stewart: did you hear her? it is illegal. doesn't stop him. well, breaking the law! i encourage you to join billions of, millions of americans who break the law every day. i was, impressive grandstanding, with delivered with panache, but let this missouri congressman tell you how not to take no hypothetical force a moment. >> if it is possible for you to go into the exchange, like all of these millions of americans that are going to the exchanges, will you commit to forego your government insurance plan you are on now and join us in the pool? >>

in the cr we passed a law that president obama signed. quote, prior to making such credits and deductions available, the secretary shall certify that the exchanges verify such eligibility consistent with the requirements of the act. here's the question. are we really verifying at the front end whether a person is actually eligible for these subsidies or not? and here's why this matters. if they're not eligible for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're ask
president obama signed the affordable care act into law have been turbulent, period marked by relentless and unanimous resistance from the opposition to establish law, consider this. president franklin roosevelt rolled out a series of programs he designed to combat the great depression, programs to build things, grow things, establish union rights and retirement programs for some federal workers. when fdr established the new deal, he, too, was met with fierce opposition. not just from members of the other party, but from the courts. during roosevelt's first term as president, the supreme court declared parts of his program unconstitutional. naturally that did not sit well with fdr so he sent congress a bill that would give the president the authority to appoint one new supreme court justice for every sitting justice over the age of 70. since there were six justices over 70 years old back then, that would mean six new justices. presumably all of them democrats. fdr lost the new deal rulings 6-3, but on a 15-member court with six new democrats, six new fdr appointees, he probably would hav
here, as you see a tremendous law enforcement presence at l.a.x., hearing from a number of eyewitnesses here and looking, as you can see a couple different boxes on your screen. aerial pictures, right side of the screen, a bunch of planes just sitting there around terminal three, and on the left-hand side of the screen, this is the passenger pickup and drop-off area which has become sort of this makeshift triage area as well. and in the last hour or sore so, we have seen people, as has been dubbed a multipatient incident. multiple people injured. we're working to get an update on the injuries, as we mentioned, one of whom is a tsa agent. sarah richardson is on the phone with me. she is at l.a.x. sarah, are you with me? >> yes. >> let me just ask you, first of all, how are you? are you okay? >> i'm okay. >> tell me -- i hear your voice. let me just begin, let's start at the beginning. and if you can, just tell me, i understand you weren't quite through airport security when you heard shots, is that right? >> we were about to go through the security. >> sarah, are you okay? >> yeah. >> i

the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is you've got to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act act from the very beginning. >> essentially saying if you like your plan and they changed the plan to something you shouldn't like, i will change it for you. first off on the qualifying statement, 60% of all of these exchanges only have one option across the country. so you can't shop, you only have one product to choose from number one. number two, they did the slightest change to the health care which you hads, you are able to be kicked off, no longer to be grandfathered. the president did a wonderful two-step. instead of saying if you like your plan you can keep your plan. if you like your plan, you'll be able to keep it unless we deem it not good enough for
of internet gambling, which is against the law, yet is thriving in this country. but first, my report about one of the biggest scandals in the history of online gambling. a small group of people managed to cheat players out of more than $20 million, and it would have gone undetected if it hadn't been for the players themselves, who used the internet to root out the corruption. as a joint investigation by 60 minutes and the washington post revealed in 2008, it raises new questions about the integrity and security of the shadowy and highly profitable business that operates outside u.s. law. >> moneymaker puts his name amongst the greatest players in the game! >> if you had to pick the moment that the poker boom began, it was probably the day an unknown accountant named chris moneymaker won $2.5 million at the 2003 world series of poker. suddenly, every amateur with a hat, sunglasses, and a stack of chips saw themselves as the next big moneymaker. nearly 7,000 people competed in this year's tournament for $180 million in prize money, but the fever has spread far beyond las vegas. it is the ric
, but i'll let the law enforcement folks talk about it directly. >> again, that was from the president. local law enforcement has spoken to authorities here a number of times today. it's been quite chaotic as you can imagine anytime you have a major shooting. this is the first shooting in l.a.x. since about 10, 11 years ago. very chaotic, a packed airport. a lot of travelers. people walking up from the thousands to go nowhere, try to find hotel rooms. when you talk to authorities, here's what they said happened and how valiant one officer was who went after the suspect. take a listen. >> this individual was shooting as he went into the terminal. the officers didn't -- i repeat, they didn't hesitate. they went after this individual, and they confronted this individual in our airport. and unfortunately, it involved an officer-involved shooting, but that's what needed to be done in that particular situation, and that was heroic. >> bret, two quick things. behind me, here's people waiting to get back in and take off again. some flights are moving at l.a.x. these are the people finally let
to visit new york and other cities with battering control laws that cannot afford to stay there and this is a way to bring in tourists. gerri: apparently there is some kind of law on the books that you cannot lease your place for short-term. you know, this is like an old school kind of law. what do you think of that? >> it is unclear what the purpose of the law is. if it is to make sure that people are not running slaughterhouses and endangering the sanitation or the safety of housing codes are things like that, you can have inspections for those sorts of things. i'm not sure what this is about. no one is making complaints about their neighbors renting out their apartment or anything like that. really you have to look behind what this is actually going after. gerri: it is an attempt to grab tax revenue, let me show you what we might be on the hood for. new york city sales tax for a half percent, state sales tax, new york city hotel occupancy tax and the expansion funds charge. the list goes on and on. to think that people would even pay that is just ludicrous. i don't know

cut down by law enforcement because they didn't have the ability within a nanosecond to discriminate between the real thing and a toy. >> reporter: federal law requires imitation guns to have an orange tip on the barrel. but the law does not cover pellet guns like andy lopez's. now, the nra had no comment but in the past their position has been air guns and bb guns should not be treated like toy guns and therefore should not be brightly colored. reporting live in santa rosa, cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> following the tragedy in santa rosa, police departments around the bay area are warning trick or treaters not to carry toy guns on halloween or anything else that could be mistaken for a weapon. >>> a five-year-old girl is among three people hurt in a crash up in wine country. chp officers believe the driver of a jaguar was drunk at the time when the car veered into a toyota on 121 in sonoma valley last night. the passenger and the jaguar died. the three people in the toyota were injured. >>> newly released surveillance video shows four suspect in the shooting of a nightclub worker in do

by fragmented management that saw several government agencies overseeing different parts of the law without a single point person. david cutler, harvard professor and former presidential adviser. they were running the biggest startup in the world and they didn't have anyone who had run a startup or a business. it wasn't only mismanagement that doomd doomed the rollout, fear of republican sabotage and concerns over the 2012 election set the disaster two years before the site launched. "washington post" reports the white house slowed down important regulations that had been drafted months earlier, to wait until just months after president obama's election. medicare's top risk analyst, it was the president's most significant domestic policy achievement and the very aides that pushed the law through congress were risking bad implementation for a short-term political gain. regarding the president's infamous promise if you like it, you can keep it, some white house policy advisers objected to the breadth of keep your plan, they were overruled. in recent days, current aides have downplayed or dism

law. as a republican, do you think, yeah, this could work and our party needs to change its pos cure at some point here? >> i thought from the beginning the party had the wrong posture, i would be advising and said, look, it's a huge reach. it's a big government program coming down on people, forcing people to buy insurance that they may not want, coverage, say that, you can say that. but say here's what we need to change it. here's what we need to make it work. because the average american knew our health care system was in need of help. they have seen costs go up dramatically, there are costs that are absolutely things people want, preexisting condition, allowing you to keep your children under 21. those kind of things. so to say you are going to do away with it doesn't make a lot of sense. i would have said, we think this is a big problem, it's going too fast. it's a 2,000 page bill that nancy pelosi says we won't know what's in it until we pass it. here are the changes we'd like to make and then sit back. if it's going to fail, let it fail of its own accord. >> governor, when you
by law insurers cannot continue to sell policies that don't provide the minimum benefits and consumer protections required. this overblown controversy has obscured the crux of what health care reform is trying to do. people are getting thrown off their health care plans because the affordable care act has standards which if your plan doesn't have they have to go out of business. it has to have pediatric care, maternity, prescription drugs. if it doesn't, you are canceled. >> you look at the title of that editorial in "the new york times," "not worth keeping." not only is the administration with those restrictions deciding what policies are right for you, but apparently this opinion article here in the editorial section, they're deciding too that they're not worth keeping. >> i almost think that's the comic section of news now, the editorial. it's basically a 30-second promo for whatever democratic plan president obama put forward. it never used to be like this with bill clinton. they used to take bill clinton on. i don't know what happened to "the new york times." they used to be some
and their doctors, they would be able to keep them under the new law. but nbc news is reporting the obama administration knew for several years the majority of people who buy their own health coverage wouldn't be able to keep this happen their policies under obama care. nbc says those forced to buy new insurance may experience sticker shock from higher premiums. when the law was passed in march of 2010, it was supposed to grant grandfather in existing policies, even if they didn't comply with the rules. but that same year, the department of health and human services rewrote some regulations essentially getting rid of the grandfather exemption. now, the white house isn't disputing the report, but tells nbc most individual policyholders should receive better health coverage that's more affordable thanks to government subsidies. the administration says no policy will be canceled due to pre-existing medical conditions. now, congress will get the chance today to grill the top administration official closest to the rollout of the troubled obama care website. medicare chief marilyn tavenner will
